Nanotechnology is an emerging technology in many industries, including aquaculture sector. Although these nanoparticles are widely used in the aquaculture, the increase in their production and use has raised many concerns about their potential toxicity to human health and the environment. Therefore, the present study aims to review the benefits and disadvantages of nanotechnology in aquaculture. This work will provide a comprehensive review to better undestanding of decision-makers in aquaculture section. In this study, the role of nanotechnology and its benefits in various sectors of the aquaculture industry, such as nutrition, reproduction, water purification, fishing and health control of diseases are discussed, and then, the negative effects and toxicity. The use of these materials in rearing systems was evaluated from an ecological and environmental point of view.
